My 500th Post! & A Few of My Favorite Things Giveaway

Yes, folks.  THIS is my 500th published post on Frugal Foodie Mama.

Blogger milestone, right? ;)

First, I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who have been following along whether from the very beginning when I didn't even think to include photos with my recipe posts or even if you have just joined me on my journey today.  
You all rock.

To celebrate and to show my appreciation, I want to give one of you a prize pack of some of my favorite things...
~Girl Scout Samoas Cookies~ 
~Celestial Seasonings Sweet Coconut Thai Chai Tea (I drink a cup of this almost every night before I go to bed. It is one of my newest faves.)~
~C.O. Bigelow Organics Raspberry Jam lip gloss~ 
~Sunny Patch Farms Honey Citrus Lip Balm (This is made by a local shop here & I absolutely adore it.)~
~Under the Tuscan Sun (the BOOK, not the movie. The movie sucked compared to the book. ;) )~
~Bath & Body Works bath pouf (the only one I will use)~
~Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate (73% Super Dark) Bar (I ALWAYS have one of these stashed away.)~
~Kiss Nail Dress in Baby Doll (Love this design & love manicures that don't require any drying time!)~
~$10 Starbucks Gift Card (I am a Peppermint Mocha addict, but feel free to order your favorite Starbucks concoction. ;) )~

Okay, I know you all are wanting to know just how you can win all of this awesomeness above. ;) 
Another one of my most favorite things is Pinterest.  Not only has it become my #1 go-to site for finding new recipes that inspire me, nifty organizing tips, & new home decor ideas to try out, but it is also the #1 driver of traffic to my blog.  Plus, I hit over 5,000 Pinterest followers last week!  
Blown. Away. :)
So, let's have a fun Pinterest contest, shall we?

All you have to do is a create a public Pinterest board titled My Favorite Things, and pin at least 10 of your favorite things on this board.  Included in these 10 pins must be 2 of your favorite Frugal Foodie Mama recipe posts and also a pin of this giveaway post with the image above.  (Pssssttt... when pinning from my Recipes tab, please be sure to click Full Post under the photo of the recipe & then pin that page.) Easy enough, right?  And you will get TEN entries for completing your Pinterest board! :) 
After you have completed the My Favorite Things Pinterest board entry, all other entries are optional bonus entries.
